Source: Discovery.Com http://tinyurl.com/89nrauj Thu Jul 5, 2012 Could Terrorist Aliens Cyberattack Us? by Ray Villard Ever since H.G. Wells' 1898 classic novel The War Of The Worlds, science fiction books, movies, and even video games have had fun portraying alien invasion fleets pillaging Earth. Even the esteemed astrophysicist Stephen Hawking has speculated about space invaders conquering Earth. But maybe any bellicose extraterrestrials prefer to attack us at the speed of light, literally. garbage ANALYSIS: Why Would Aliens Invade? In an article posted on io9.com, contributor George Dvorsky asked a couple SETI scientists if an alien radio transmission could contain a virus designed to infect our computers and carry out untold mischief. They said that the odds were pretty low, but not impossible. The phrase "not impossible" is fundamental to any speculation about the future. Any imagined events that obey our present laws of physics are possible, no matter how unlikely. This is best described in one of Arthur C. Clarke's three laws of prediction: "When a distinguished but elderly scientist states that something is possible, he is almost certainly right. When he states that something is impossible, he is very probably wrong." [More at site... thanks to Diana Cammack for the lead]] Listen to 'Strange Days...
